This n that

I'm just popping in real quick to say hi. I'm in the middle of my second intensive immersion week I'm doing for the social workers. It's going quite well. Yesterday at the end of class we were doing an activity where I put some words on the board and one person sits at the front of the class with their back to the board. All the other students had to describe the words and get the person in the hotseat to say them. The category was parts of the body and the girl in the hotseat didn't know the word wrist. The students were trying all kinds of things to jog her memory. One guy shouted out, "It's the thing that gets exercised the most when a guy is single!" I do love me some bawdy. She never did get the word but we all got a pretty good laugh.

Ah that Georgie. He ate a cushion yesterday. Well he didn't actually eat it. He tore a corner open and then destuffed it. Serge wasn't happy but I reminded him that at $7.00 that cushion cost less than a regular dog toy. We had gotten a pair of them on sale last summer.

I'm sure there's more but at this hour I can't think of anything else. Time to hop in the shower and skidaddle. Happy hump day peeps!

The wrist thing, how could you not laugh until you were in tears? This is the reason why I love language classes, they are broad enough that the funniest things come up and it can still be considered "on topic"

Georgie, reminds me of the time Hugo decided my teddy bear was a toy. He was a young pup, we left the house for 30 mins and left him out, he got a hold of the the teddy and ripped the stuffing out. Oh he knew he was bad just by our shock when we got home. Now because of that teddy is always safe, even if you tease him with teddy he leaves it alone.

One might argue that the thing that gets excercised most is not the wrist but the thing that one has a handle on. Get a grip but not too tight, LOL. ed

I love how you talk Serge down from the bell tower! It's adorable!

Still having fun with the puppy, I see! I wish I could say that they outgrow the 'eat everything in sight and poop it out later' phase but sigh..... they don't - we have some ornate floor level molding missing in the dining room again! Hugz to you and Serge from the gang of us.

Hope you have a good week with no unexpected twists.

I thought you were going to say that one clue given for the word wrist was "it is limp on gay guys", which would also be funny.

Bawdy is great, especially if you can use it to master another language!

I want to sit in on one of your classes. Too many people don't realize you can have fun while you work (my current new boss being one of them).
